Congress, White House get a 'D' grade – Christine Romans on a CNNMoney.com survey of economists

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - When it comes to handling the economy, neither Obama nor Congress make the grade.

CNNMoney asked 20 economists to give the Obama administration and the current Congress a letter grade for their performance on the economy. And none of those surveyed gave either one an A.

While both received overall averages of D, Obama did a little better than Congress, scoring three B's and only one F.

This morning on "Early Start," Christine Romans explains why economists felt Congress and the White House should receive the bad grade.

    I would like to take the chance of saying thanks to you for the professional assistance I have constantly enjoyed going to your site. I'm looking forward to the commencement of my college research and the complete prep would never have been complete without checking out your blog. If I can be of any help to others, I would be delighted to help by means of what I have gained from here.
